Women’s Boxing in 2012 Olympics

London will be host to the 2012 Olympics and if amateur boxing has its way, will also usher in a new era in women’s amateur boxing.

Women have enjoyed representation in Olympic combat sports for years including Judo, Wrestling and Tae Kwon Do, making the absence of female boxing a bit of a mystery.

According to International Boxing Association president Wu Ching-Kuo, “Boxing is the only sport in the Olympic programme without women and we believe we are ready.”

The decision to allow women’s boxing in the Olympics should be made sometime in 2009.
